Assignments must be turned in when due to receive full credit.
Teachers will clearly inform students of assignment due dates. Late assignments will receive partial credit depending on individual teacher policies and disclosures. Extenuating circumstances may be considered with teacher approval.
MAKE-UP WORK is only for excused absences. Students are responsible to find out what was missed and have at least two days for each day of absence to turn the work in for full credit.

Citizenship grades are based on behavior, class participation, and tardies. Students who are tardy will not receive points for the starters. Every two tardies will lower the citizenship grade to the next level: 0-2 tardies=H 3 tardies = S 4 = N 6+ = U Tardies may be made up for this grade, but starter points cannot be made up. To make-up tardies, students must see individual teachers.
Teachers may send home course descriptions and additional information specific to their areas.
